The sale is on until July 4th... so I say June 25th, LOL!


Geez man, you're only giving me 1 day? Thanks a pile! :lol:

*looks at my actual want list, then thinks of things I would cave if they were cheap*

I'm confident my resolve is strong!

I'm really getting tempted to buy the 2K pack for $89. Any suggestions?

BTW my steam id is gnashvar. We need a little tag like the email and msn ones in our profiles. Maybe racketboy can change the ICQ one that I don't see anyone using for steam :P

There's always services like this one.

I agree though, I think we could afford to lose the ICQ button and appropriate it for something else. Would only be a few lines of code that would need changing in PHP, it's dead easy. Who the hell still uses ICQ? I remember using it at least 13 years ago before things like msn messenger etc got popular. I used it as an alternative to the equally as useless AIM.

I still use AIM. Instead of having msn for everyone I divide hobby, forums, friends and family in different ms services.

ICQ is still heavily used in India, or so I am told.

I have a feeling that Fourth of July weekend will be a gaming binge for me. I need to beat all the Tales of Monkey Island games that I bought at Christmas. Well those and those Freespace games I bought and havent even downloaded off GoG.

There was a thread about the new Rocket Knight recently so you might search for that. There's a demo on 360 as well if you want to give it a whirl.

Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit is you're in Europe) is under 5 bucks now. It was considered good despite it seeming like the writer's dog ate the last twenty pages of script. All of the X-COM titles are heavily discounted too. So much shit is on sale you're bound to find something you like.
